    Nice place run by friendly people serving good food and drink. I've eaten there several times but there's so much competition now. And being right opposite Parkway is a killer with all their "name" offerings. People tend to want what they know, unfortunately. However mediocre.

    What's the bet this will become another card shop/poundland/mobile phone "accessory" store?

    Nooooo! Where am I going to go on my Thursday mornings now? Where will I get my spicy falafal wrap? So sad. My favourite coffee shop in town. ;-(

    As usual though, the large American run giants continue.....hoovering up anything that dares to be independent.

      Unfortunately, this looks like a case of location, location, location. I didn't even know this place existed. Costa is British owned I think you'll find.Starbucks on the other hand, is owned by our cousins. Their coffee tastes like **** though.

        NoisyNortherner - You're right, Italian immigrants who moved over in the 60's, your also right that Starbucks isn't very pleasant
